The Line: St. Louis Cardinals / Milwaukee Brewers --- Over/Under:
The Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals play game two of their series Tuesday night.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Brewers have scored 11 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games. The Brewers have lost five of their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Ryan Braun leads Milwaukee with 46 hits and 38 RBI while Adam Lind and Khris Davis have combined for 39 RBI. The Milwaukee Brewers have split their last eight road games. Tyler Cravy makes his major league debut with the nod. Cravy was 33-26 with a 3.71 ERA and 445 strikeouts in his minors career.
The St. Louis Cardinals look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Cardinals have scored four runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last seven games. The Cardinals have lost five of their last eight games when scoring three or less runs. Jhonny Peralta and Kolten Wong have combined for 118 hits and 53 RBI while Matt Carpenter has 27 RBI. The St. Louis Cardinals have won six of their last eight home games. Lance Lynn takes the hill, and he’s 3-4 with a 3.41 ERA and 67 strikeouts this season. Lynn is 6-3 with a 2.78 ERA and 84 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 4-10 in their last 14 during game 2 of a series and 21-45 in their last 66 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Cardinals are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series and 2-6 in Lynns last 8 starts vs. National League Central. The Brewers are 23-49 in the last 72 meetings.
I have a lot more faith in the Cards at home than a new pitcher and the Brewers offense on the road. Look for St. Louis to bounce back.
